Adventure Tandem Paragliding
Your adventure starts in the most beautiful destination in Osttirol. One of the most requesting starting places to tandem paragliding in Lienz is Steiner Mandl at a height of 2.200 m above sea level.
It is a very comfortable ride in a gondola and a chairlift (Lienzer Bergbahnen) to the Lienz Zettersfeld, also known as the “Sun Deck of the Alps”.
From your starting place in Zettersfeld, you already have a fantastic view of the surrounding mountains as well as the Lienz Dolomites. This view can only be surpassed by the one you have on your paraglide.
After your very detailed demonstration from Manfred, your pilot, and a few small steps, you are on your way to your adventure.
Let yourself enjoy the feeling of total freedom! All of your cares are left behind as you soar through the air with the wind in your face. A feeling of total energy and the joy of life surround you. What a feeling!
As an added bonus you will experience the beauty of the mountains, especially the highest mountains, the Großglockner and the Großvenediger. You feel as if you could almost touch the peaks at the Lienzer Dolomites as the city of Lienz lies at your feet. You need to live for pure enjoyment and let go of all other thoughts. Live in the “now”.
After your soft landing in the valley, your first taste of paragliding can lead you to book another tandem flight. Perhaps you need more, so you can sign up for a course in paragliding at the Lienz Flight School.
